Bill McNamara – current board member
I have lived in Homestead for 26 years and have watched many changes during that time. I have also served on the Homestead Board for the past two terms. I worked as the Manager of Centennial Condominiums for 32 years and have now been retired for the past two years. I also own a condominium in Eagle Vail of which I have been on that board for the past 15 years. I bring a lot of experience from the field of property management and from serving on two boards. I am also a tennis player and an avid hiker. Like many residents I am very concerned about our hiking trails and our access to them year round. Unfortunately our valley continues to grow and many more changes will happen which will also affect our current lifestyle. I hope to be a good voice for our community with whatever is brought forward to deal with.
I have lived in Homestead since 1998. My wife Jackie and I raised two daughters here and are recently empty nesters. I have had a career in construction management my entire adult life that complements any position on a DRC. My experience has covered many sectors of construction from luxury home building, to local enclave developments in areas like Arrowhead, to commercial projects like the Vail Mountain School and The Vail Health Campus. I am currently a Senior Project Manager for a Construction Management/Owners Rep Firm, Cumming Management Group, an international company with Colorado offices in Denver and Avon. Formerly a Homestead board member, around 10-12 years ago, I enjoyed my time on the board. It was very rewarding being more involved in our community. Now that our family is a bit older and the kids are on their own, I have more time to give back to the community and welcome the opportunity to serve on the Homestead Board and DRC.
I’ve owned homes in Homestead since 2002. I hold an MA (American Lit) and an MBA. After Army service I became an executive at AAA. I moved on to executive/CEO positions with the world’s first digital route guidance mapping company (what’s in your car and on your phone) on-line learning, EV R&D, and others. Presently I provide leadership consulting services to privately-held companies. I was president of an HOA in Miami for 3 years. My interests serving on the Homestead board touch three areas. I support proactive, intentional ways to gather feedback from members of our community. I’ll advocate for board meetings at times convenient to working families. I’ll strive to insure the HOA’s financial and physical assets are protected and well-maintained and able to deliver on the promise of first-class services and facilities as part of the “value proposition” of Homestead.
